How to Develop Websites Using ASP.NET

ASP.NET is great for building standards-based websites with HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. ASP.NET supports three approaches for making web sites. ASP.NET Web Forms uses controls and an event-model for component-based development. ASP.NET MVC values separation of concerns and enables easier test-driven development. ASP.NET Web Pages prefers a single page model that mixes code and HTML markup. You can mix and match these techniques within one application depending on your needs – it’s all One ASP.NET.
